@theacidskull: Most have a problem with a size which is over 9 feet. Fans say: "He´s not a giant." I would not mind if Hulk can adapt his size to situations (as in the Ang Lee movie). The biggest problem is Hulk relative to a tank. If he can not tower over a tank, then he looks pretty puny.

@theacidskull: Yes, I know what you mean. However, Hulk was originally about 7 ft. Perhaps the reason is the average height in the '60s. At that time a man with 7 ft was a giant. Today, it´s not the case anymore.

Its not the size of the Hulk, its the motion in the radioactive green rage monster-ulk.

@theacidskull:

Hulk's doesn't have to grow in size constantly.

If he's becoming a cosmic force rivaling Galactus then i'd expect a size change like in the HOTM story line.

@knightrise:

Yep.he's a radioactive monster-dude. What has size got to do with being super charged with the power of gamma rays? Not much.

The Hulk isn't King Kong.

Like Hulk himself says: "Strength is what matters, not size... and Hulk is strongest there is!!"

Personally, I think Hulk should be around 8 feet 8 inches in height and over 2,000 pounds. That's how large Hulk was during Pak's tenure and Mark Waid's current run. He's supposed to be massive, towering over even guys as large as Thor. I could settle for 8-8.6 feet tall & 1,500-2,000 pounds, but no less than that.

I mean, think about it.

Thor is 6.6 feet tall and 650 lbs. If Hulk were 8.6 feet tall and weighs 2,000 lbs, that make him 2 feet taller and nearly three times as heavy in mass as Thor.

Here two examples:

In feet: 9/12/15
In feet: 9/12/15
I would say, this is too much.
I would say, this is too much.

If Hulk has to interact with the Avengers, a gigantic size would be difficult. However, if he is fighting against war machine, he should be huge. Hulk is strong, but he is subject to the laws of physics. If he, for example, want to throw a tank, he gets in trouble. Because a tank weighs more than 60 tons. He also needs a good grip. With small hands it is impossible. Either he remains as big as he is or he should grow. There is no other solution.

(By the way: the soldier in my pictures is 5,97 ft/182 cm.)

@zardu: 7.5 Is perfect to me. You don't want the Hulk so big it looks like he's just bullying small children when he's smacking around Thor. And I don't want him so big he towers over the likes of Juggernaut. Hulk is the strongest one there is, not the biggest there is. And Ang Lee was the worse thing to happen to the Hulk since Jeff Purves. If you want a giant I suggest you pick The Incredible wife beater Hank Pym.

@verotikryptonite: When one consider that Hulk is also very wide, then 7.5 ft is sufficient.

@theacidskull: Now keep in mind Hulk would be 4x the width of Yao. And Hulk would also have about a 13 foot wing-span

@theacidskull: I like a giant Hulk, especially when he fights against tanks, jets and helicopters. But if he has to interact with people (Avengers), then it would be better if he had not more than 9 ft. Hence a growing Hulk would actually be the best solution.

This Hulk statue is 7,9 ft (240 cm). But I have to say: he doesn´t look too small.

He is not exactly upright.

The soldier is 182 cm (just as in the other pictures).
